This morning, President Donald Trump tweeted about his legal battle with adult film star Stormy Daniels, according to The Hill.
An Overview of Trump vs. Daniels
The president’s tweet came roughly 24 hours after a California federal judge tossed Daniels’ defamation suit against him. The judge also ordered Daniels to cover Trump’s legal costs.
“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!

Daniels’ lawsuit against the president maintained that he defamed her character; the adult film actress claimed that she and Trump had an affair between 2006 and 2007. The president has subsequently denied having any relationship with Daniels.
Shortly after President Trump’s earlier tweet, Daniels fired back:
Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present your president. In addition to his…umm…shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self control on Twitter AGAIN! And perhaps a penchant for bestiality. Game on, Tiny. https://t.co/6DpDD5ELtj

Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney, also responded to President Trump’s critical tweet:
You are a disgusting misogynist and an embarrassment to the United States. Bring everything you have, because we are going to demonstrate to the world what a complete shyster and liar you are. How many other women did you cheat on your wife with while you had a baby at home? https://t.co/npOKOEFju6
